In a feature story titled, “Simulation offers UW students practical experience in crisis negotiation,” UW News interviews Jackson School Professor Robert Pekkanen about the annual International Strategic Crisis Negotiation Exercise hosted by the Jackson School’s Master’s in Applied International Studies program and the U.S. Army War College.

Pekkanen developed the capstone course for the applied international studies graduate program, which is open to graduate, undergraduate and non-matriculated students, and continues to lead it since it began in 2015.
